I would like to specify one important factor in my eco-friendly journey: I need to be able to maintain a fashionable and professional wardrobe.
I want to be eco-friendly without sacrificing my personal style. I'm not going to claim that I'm the most fashionable person in the world, but I have my own style and I like it. I'm not looking to switch over to potato sack dresses. I also need to be able to dress professionally for work, and to feel confident in my clothing. If I can't do this while following my eco-friendly rules, well then, I think I'll prove that right now it's not possible to be an eco-friendly fashionista.
To be honest, I haven't written in a few weeks because I was having second thoughts about this blog and this journey. I'm less and less confident that I'll be able to pull it off. It's going to take a lot of will power to not cave to a beautiful dress I see at a department store, or some cheap sweaters I see at H&M. However I've been doing well so far. I have actually purchase two dresses since I started this "journey", both were second hand from Buffalo Exchange in Davis Sq.
The one I bought most recently I'm wearing to work today. It's a cute black dress with flounces around the collar, down the front and around the hem. The thing is though it's originally from Forever 21. I wonder if I shouldn't be supporting fast fashion even if it is second hand... that's something to ponder...
